Whore

Ho is an abbreviation of the word whore, which means prostitute and is often used as a synonym of slut.

Both ho and whore are widely used as insulting terms for females, typically by young men, but also sometimes by other females.

Ho is often spelled "hoe," especially in the plural, when "hoes" is considered easier to read than "hos."
